Hi I'm Susan Cameron, and I sometimes say that my activism is a form of penance. Dr. King said, "History will have to record that the greatest tragedy ... was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people." I'm an activist today because I was silent too long. I've seen, up close and personal, the damage, alienation and marginalization that seemingly well-meaning Christians can perpetrate against women, minorities, LGBTQ persons, and even my own children, when they wanted to ask hard questions. As someone who is older, educated and privileged, I'm excited to take a supporting role in the Equality Ride House, playing a part in empowering a new generation working for justice in the very educational institutions that once tried to teach me to keep silent.
*When you support Susan, you are providing housing, training, food, transportation, printing, and staff support to a group of powerful activists creating a home for people in Southern California who live, breathe, work, and study in hostile fundamentalist contexts. Thanks for making Soulforce come alive in new ways through the Equality Ride program.
